I stayed here for 4 nights and overall had a good experience. Its away from the busy unawatuana and hikkaduwa, very quiet and relaxing place. The deluxe room I stayed in had a really good view of the boats and the weligama bay. The room was extremely comfortable and clean. The staff were friendly, the food was simple but tasty.... More

It's taken me six months to get over the shock enough to write a review. Most of the conditions were totally unacceptable for any hotel expected to cater for European guests. This was advertised in February 2011 as newly refurbished and opening in November 2011. At Xmas 2011: There were shards of glass 3' long dangling from patio doors and... More

I arrived for the duration of the Galle Test, and had no pre-conceived ideas of what to expect. It was apparently not the Hotel's fault that the brochure stated there was a lift, when in fact there never has been one. I was allotted a top (4th) floor room and, as an arthritis sufferer, I was not amused at having... More

We visited Bay Beach in February having read previous reports and seen pictures we were not totally surprised by the run down hotel. All what is said in the reviews is true, packs of wild dogs roaming but they never bothered you, the swimming pool was clean and there seemed to be enough sun beds to go around for the... More

We stayed at the Bay Beach Hotel so that we could go and watch the cricket test match at Gaul and, after reading some of the other entries concerning this hotel, felt I should add some balance. Whilst I can see that for those who had only read the official hotel web site description it may have been a disappointment... More

We booked this last minute after a change of plan to our travel schedule without having any information about the place appart from the misleading website.It probably once was a good hotel but 30 years later without any maintenance it has turned it into a dump. We stayed approximately 30 minutes, enough to see the dirty, tired broken rooms,the filthy... More

Managed to escape this hotel after 3 hours. A demolition site best describes this hotel with all the broken windows, rooms gutted, no fronts on them, with broken sun beds stored in them. The pool advertised as "sapphire blue" was the coluor and density of pea soup, water from a huge hole in the grounds being pumped into it. The... More
